Using the Globe local Italy SIM, they can also call Globe and TM subscribers in the Philippines for only seven euro cents or P4.50 per minute. No other mobile operator in Italy offers these affordable rates.
Globe has also expanded its international footprint to include the UK,another dream destination for Filipino travelers, where they can enjoy 10 pence or just P7.50 for both calls and texts to Globe and TM users in the Philippines as well as to all networks in the UK. Mobile data costs only £1 (one UK pound) or P75 for 10 megabytes (MB) of data to power a two-minute video stream, 10 emails with attachments and 100 posts on their social networking accounts.
"We aim to provide the best connectivity offers to Filipinos traveling overseas. We are pleased to be able to introduce these Globe services to Pinoys visiting Italy and the UK, making it more affordable to keep in touch with family and friends back in the Philippines," said Globe chief operations officer and executive vice president for International and Business Markets Gil Genio.
